Dawn Walters-Howard BSN '16 Excited to be Back in the Classroom

After a decade working at two London hospitals and 10 more years in nursing in the U.S., Walters-Howard is taking the next step in her education.

Every nurse has likely heard of Florence Nightingale, the Italian-born nurse who professionalized nursing as a vocation in England and established the first school of nursing at King's College in London. Dawn Walters-Howard knows the story better than most, having graduated from the Nightingale Institute as a registered general nurse. Now a candidate for her Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree at Emmanuel College, she said she is excited to be back in the classroom. "As a lifelong learner, this degree will enhance my clinical experiences and expand my knowledge," Dawn says. It is hard to imagine a BSN candidate who has more nursing knowledge and experience. Before leaving her native England for the United States, Dawn spent 10 years working at two London hospitals where she perfected her skills and mentored nursing students.  And she has spent the past 10 years in nursing in the U.S., including six years working at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. In addition to providing skilled direct care to her patients, Dawn also serves as a preceptor and mentor to new nurses.
